Community Christmas Day – Volunteers needed

Christmas is fast approaching! We are currently requesting for members who are able to join our team of dedicated volunteers in making happen the Community Christmas Day Lunch at St Georges Church. Events will begin with hall preparation from the 24th December and lunch held on Christmas day (25 December!)

It is a great opportunity to show the love of Christ by serving those, especially the elderly who would not get the opportunity to spend Christmas with their families.

Work to be done includes:

Prep hall and vegetables Christmas Eve, driving, kitchen help, entertainment, and companions on Christmas Day.

If you have a few hours to spare, for more information contact Joanna Abraham on 07828244119 or email: marinaoabraham@gmail.com
